Batman Volume 5When Catwoman accepted Batman's marriage proposal she changed lives than just Bruce Wayne's and Selina Kyle's A union between the World's Greatest Detective and one of Gotham City's fiercest criminals is a shake up that will rattle everyone in the Dark Knight's life from the young vigilantes who make up his surrogate family to his legendary friends in the Justice Leagu. The Bat finally popped the uestion to the Cat and now they’re getting hitched Which means Bruce has gotta do the banal things many single fathers do when they remarry meet with the ex have a talk with his kid about his new soon to be stepmother and break the happy news to his friends But Bruce is not an ordinary person so these tasks inevitably involve taking on a small army of silent soldiers breaking UN agreements and sword fighting in the desert with a lunatic Which do you prefer your Batman comics to be character or plot driven Ideally both right Well if it’s plot driven then you might not enjoy Batman Volume 5 The Rules of Engagement as there’s barely any attempt at a story this is unabashedly all about the characters And this one in particular is a unicorn it’s all about the feels I know cold stoic Batman and emotions R r romance Oh my god It’s so good I’m gonna stop underestimating Tom King’s Batman series Against all of my expectations because I haven’t cared for any of his other highly acclaimed comics The VisionOmega MenThe Sheriff of Babylon it’s been really really amazing so far despite the overlongmediocre last volume The War of Jokes and Riddles And somehow it’s only gotten better five books in I know I rolled my eyes too when I heard Batman and Catwoman were getting married Oh that’ll last Oh here come the gimmicks getting desperate now King Y’know what even if it doesn’t last and it probably won’t this book is still fan bloody tastic King writes a really amusing Talia al Ghul as she reacts to Bruce and Selina’s nuptials by giving them swords and attacking them Blunt arrogant elegant and deadly he absolutely nailed her character And the spectacular Joelle Jones draws it all so damn beautifully with swirling confident lines piercing facial expressions and mesmerising body language I wish she was a regular on Batman And I liked the cheeky bit of self promotion she threw in Damian’s reading a book called The Lady Killer Murders of 1961 a nod to Jones’ ‘60s set Dark Horse series Lady Killer which is an absolutely brilliant comic I love how King writes Damian here Like father like son he’s standoffish but he’s also a kid and he’s obviously conflicted about what’s going on That’s why I loved how Dick is there for him like a big brother should be waiting outside with him while Talia’s rages at Bruce inside Dick and Damian are still the best damn Batman and Robin there ever was and I really appreciate King continuing to build these characters’ friendship long after that partnership ended The Superfriends two parter is definitely the standout of the book Bruce finally sees Clark and they decide to go on an adorbs couples double date Bruce Selina Clark Lois to a fair with a superhero theme and decide to dress as each other Bruce goes as Superman Clark as Bats Lois as Cats and Selina as sexpot It’s such good fun watching Clark and Bruce’s batting cage rivalry and Lois and Selina swigging from a hipflask and bonding It’s King’s laconic almost singsong in its repetitious call and answer style dialogue that makes it work Bruce uipping that the Bat symbol stands for bats Lois and Selina giggling over their mens’ abs Bruce saying that he’ll need to kick a bunch of trees to work off the fair food and Lois wondering why anyone would kick a tree it’s a Year One reference The love boat panels made me laugh seeing Clark and Lois emerging cutely hand in hand and then Bruce and Selina coming out Selina crawling all over BruceThe book closes out with an overview of Bruce and Selina’s tempestuous courtship King’s BatmanElmer Fudd artist Lee Weeks draws this story with a nod to their previous collab as Catwoman crashes the Batmobile into Porky’s Bar Weeks’ art always looks good but it’s particularly eye catching here there’s a lot of dramatic perspective shifts from intimate close ups to cinematic pull backs and a remarkable use of light and shadow Michael Lark I know this book has all the best artists draws the final story which is 100% pure schmaltz And I didn’t care It was a fine way to round out a book all about love You can nitpick this book if you want Batman and Catwoman rescuing Holly Robinson the woman who killed 237 people which Selina took the blame for just happens to be sheltering with Talia Al Ghul It’s pure contrivance designed just to get the Bat Cat and Talia together to do their thing Superman getting upset that Batman was breaking UN sanctions against Khadym was pointless as there were no conseuences to it Would Selina really best Talia in a swordfight And Selina’s “meeeow” ing gets old fast They’re small criticisms though that don’t affect the overall themes of the book derail what’s happening or take away from my enjoyment of it And I really enjoyed this one it’s so much fun King nails the characters gives them terrific dialogue concocts very amusing scenes with them and has one amazing artist after another visually bring it to vivid life Like I said if you don’t care that much about the characters and you prefer story heavy books this one probably won’t do much for you But Batman is my dude and if he means as much to you as he does to me then it doesn’t get much better than Batman Volume 5 The Rules of Engagement Right well best start shopping for a top hat the wedding’s right round the corner I wonder if Superman’s gonna be the best man what would a Superman stag night look like Probably sweaters and board games Let’s hope Jason Todd is in charge of that detail
